Portuguese Nationality Applications

Spain and Portugal have both passed laws offering citizenship to people with Jewish ancestors from those countries. The native language texts of these laws can be found on the Spanish and Portuguese Government portals. More information can be found on the websites of the local Jewish communities in Spain and Portugal (Lisbon and Porto).

The S&P Sephardi Community (SPSC) has been asked to support the process by – where appropriate – issuing letters confirming an applicant’s Sephardic ancestry. If you are interested in receiving a Letter of Confirmation from us, please complete the form below and we shall get in touch.
